Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond struggling with his defense

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/15) Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond couldn't get things figured out on defense in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Phillies. Desmond was charged with an error after mishandling a throw from Dan Uggla in the third inning, allowing a run to score.

"Both times Desmond didn't get a grip on the baseball. It's one of those things," manager Matt Williams said to MLB.com. "He is going to be back out there tomorrow playing short for us and helping us win a game."

Desmond now has eight errors on the year.

"Brutal," Desmond said. "But I've done it before and I'm going to work my way out of it. … If this is the biggest problem in my life, I guess I'm doing all right. At the end of the year, I will look back at this and know that I made my way through it."

Matt Williams: Ian Desmond's timing is a little off to start season

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/9/15) Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that Ian Desmond's timing is a little off, which is why he has struggled at the plate to start the season, per MASN. Through the first two games, Desmond has gone 0 for 7 with two strikeouts and no walks.

It's the first time he has been held without a hit to start the season since 2011, when he started the year 0 for 11. He'll face Matt Harvey on Thursday. Desmond is hitting .333 (3 for 9) with a home run, an RBI and three walks in his career against Harvey.

"I think the first two games anyway, his timing is a touch off, he looks a touch late to me, so he's working hard on making sure he is on time," Williams said. "When it's on time it's special, it's powerful. He can do a lot of things on the baseball field, (but) like anybody, if he's not on time then you can struggle a little bit. And the guys that we've seen - Bartolo (Colon), great movement, great late movement. (Jacob) deGrom last night with a real good fastball and an even better one coming today from Matt (Harvey). On time is really important. He's working hard on that. He'll figure it out quickly."

Nationals' Ian Desmond not worried about contract year

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/23/15) Shortstop Ian Desmond turned down the chance to sign a long-term contract extension with the Nationals before the 2014 season. He turned down a seven-year, $107 million offer, opting instead to sign with the team for two years and $17.5 million.

That contract ends after the upcoming season, and Desmond, the team's lone remaining player from when it played in Montreal, is likely playing his last year with the Nationals. 

Desmond isn't losing any sleep over his contract situation. 

"I’m going to enjoy this ride,” he told Tom Schad of the Washington Times. “And you know what, if it’s my last year here, it’s my last year here. But I’m going to enjoy every single day. I’ve got a lot of friends and family in this organization. I’m going to make sure I don’t slight them in any way by throwing in any other distractions. I owe it to everybody here to give my 100 percent concentration, and that’s what I’m going to do."

Desmond hit .255 for the Nationals last year, with 24 home runs and 91 RBI.

Report: Nationals, Ian Desmond have not talked extension

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/21/15) Shortstop Ian Desmond and the Nationals did not engage in contract talks during the offseason, according to MLB.com.

Due $11 million this year, Desmond will command a lot of money in the open market after the 2015 season.

In 2014, Desmond hit .225 with 24 home runs and 91 RBI.

Report: Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond will not be traded

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/15) Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond will reportedly not be traded and remain with the team for the time being, according to FOXSports.com senior baseball writer Ken Rosenthal.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo reportedly told another executive this week Desmond will not be traded, but the team would consider a deal "that we can't refuse." Rizzo also said the deal would have to be "pretty elaborate," according to Rosenthal.

Desmond hit .225 in 2014 with 24 home runs and 91 RBI for the Nationals.
